No shit, Sherlock:
Facebook, Axios And NBC Paid This Guy To Whitewash Wikipedia Pages
And it almost always works.
Wikipedia has no standards. They are horrid, and they have no trouble giving slanderous labels to people citing evidence that supports what they say. They have labelled people genocide deniers when multiple official reports have stated there were war crimes, but no genocide (something I will discuss in another post when I am ready).
So on the one hand, they make certain people look like evil loons, and you have others who pay to manage their Wiki page, which they have made a big stink that they don’t allow that to happen. Bullshit.
Of course it happens. Most of the entries read like press releases, meaning it is rife with all sort of propaganda, from celebrity propaganda to war propaganda. It is a vile website, and yet people read that and Snopes, and then think they know something.
No, you don’t. You know fuck all.
And as there are no standards whatsoever, and a million loopholes, you have a false sense of security, nothing more…
